The options

Option 1: A permit parking area (PPA) that operates for one hour a day from 9am to 10am

If a PPA operates between 9am and 10am:

  • commuters and non-residents would not be able to park all day, freeing up space for residents
  • visitors would be able to park without a permit for most of the day, but would need a permit if parking between 9am and 10am
  • customers visiting local businesses would continue to park for free, except for the hour in the morning

Option 2: A PPA that operates from 8am to 6pm

If a PPA operates from 8am to 6pm:

  • commuters and non-residents would not be able to park in the area all day, freeing up space for residents
  • visitors will not be able to park for free between 8am and 6pm and will need a daily visitor permit

Option 3: A PPA that operates during the day and evening from 8am to 10pm

If a PPA operates during the day and evening from 8am to 10pm:

  • commuters and non-residents will be prevented from parking in the area throughout the day and evening, freeing up space for residents
  • visitors will not be able to park for free between 8am and 10pm and will need a daily visitor permit
  • non-residents would only be able to park overnight if they arrive after 10pm
  • non-residents attending events at the school and community centre may not be able to park in the area

Option 4: No changes

If residents choose not to proceed with the proposals, then parking will not be reviewed in this area again for a number of years.

With no parking zone in place, the following is likely:

  • commuters, and other non-residents, will be able to continue to park for any length of time outside residential properties
  • residents will not need to buy permits to park on the roads near to their property
  • any existing parking issues will continue as now
